BIRMINGHAM City winger Mark Duffy has joined Burton Albion on loan.The former Doncaster Rovers player’s loan deal runs until January.
Duffy is very experienced in and around League 1, with over 100 appearances for Scunthorpe United and 59 appearances for Morecambe.
He spent last season on loan at League 1 Chesterfield who narrowly missed out on promotion through the play-offs.
“I knew there was a couple of clubs interested in me.” Duffy told burtonalbionfc.co.uk
“I looked at my phone and there was a message from him saying that he had called and that he wanted me to call him back.
“I had a little giggle to myself thinking it’s not a message I'd usually see really.
“He is a big pull. The style of play he likes to play. He can bring and advise as well, that’s a massive thing.”
Born in Liverpool, Duffy played for the youth teams of both home-town club Liverpool and Welsh team Wrexham. Duffy began his senior career playing non-League football for Vauxhall Motors, Prescot Cables and Southport.
Duffy signed for League Two club Morecambe on loan in February 2009, before making the move permanent in the summer.
Duffy moved to Championship side Scunthorpe United on 20 January 2011 for an undisclosed fee, signing a two-and-a-half-year contract. He made his debut two days later, in a 0–0 draw at home to Burnley.
“I have a lot of experience at this level.
“I am a player that likes to get on the ball and make things happen.
“I run at players and commit defenders and get the ball into the box.
“I like to make assists and scores goals.
“That’s what I need to do this year.
“I had a bad year last year and I need to get back on track.”
